I was in a very dark place when I found Rebecca. But she helped me remember who I was, and she instilled the strength and confidence I needed to move forward with my life. I was stunned by the level of caring, compassion, and understanding she showed - it was like I had known her my entire life!
Rebecca’s knowledge of human behavior is astounding. She was able to read between the lines and understand what was going on in my world, even when I couldn’t. She brought clarity to my life, when no one else could. She helped me put all of the pieces together, and thanks to her, my family is complete again. I’ve never been happier!
As soon as you sit down with Rebecca, you feel at ease. I know I can tell her anything and she’ll never judge me. She’s not afraid to draw parallels from her own life, and it’s obvious she truly understands and cares about her clients. With Rebecca on my side, I feel like I can achieve anything.
I never knew a therapist could be as caring and attentive as Rebecca is. But she’s also incredibly analytical. She is able explain things on chemical or medical level, and put it into layman’s terms. This makes me understand what is happening in my brain and my body, so I can put things into perspective more easily.
When I first met Rebecca, my sex life was non-existent, despite all of my efforts. But with a few helpful hints and a boost of confidence, my sex life has never been better. These days I feel like a sex goddess!
Who knew anger and resentment were like Novocain between the sheets? I certainly didn’t. Rebecca taught me that my problems in the bedroom weren’t physical at all. But after working through some emotional issues, my sex life has never been better!
Rebecca pulled a rabbit of a hat in our relationship. We had separated and moved on with our lives, but Rebecca was able to pinpoint exactly what and where we went wrong. After helping us heal, she provided us with the tools we needed to move forward. Now I’m happy to announce we’re getting married in October!
Rebecca is a miracle worker. My partner and I had separated, and our daughter was heartbroken. We didn’t think our relationship could be fixed, but Rebecca knew the course we needed to take. Now we’ve never been happier and more confident in our future together. The wedding date is October 30th, and our daughter can’t wait to wear her princess dress! Thank you for giving me my family back Rebecca- I am forever grateful.
Rebecca, thank you for being my angel. You have always been there for me, guiding me with your warmth, compassion, and inspiring intelligence. I know that I am able to walk this tough road because you helped me find my way. I will always keep you special in my heart.
Rebecca, I don't know how to thank you for being my voice of reason, for keeping me from making some major mistakes (including suicide), and for being available to me intelligently and compassionately. Thanks for saving my life
WHAT THE VIEWERS ARE SAYING
Dear Ms. R. Rosenblat,
Just a note to congratulate you on your excellent show. I want to express my appreciation of the fact that you have introduced a note of academic elegance and classy approach to a subject which can be difficult, delicate, sensitive and which can easily slip into the vulgar. I am also impressed by the accuracy of your knowledge and your readiness at redirecting of questions, problems or individuals to the pertinent and relevant health care workers.
Dear Rebecca Rosenblat,
I am in Toronto visiting children and grandchildren and had the pleasure of watching your show last night. I had to take a few minutes to send you this note to let you know how impressed I was.
I practiced as an AASECT and BESTCO certified sex therapist in Ontario for close to forty years before retiring and moving to Victoria. Your answers to questions very quickly illustrated your knowledge, your comfort in the area and your values, all of which I found exemplary. You are taking over where my old friend Sue J. left off and doing an excellent job of it. BRAVO! Keep up the good work.

Rebecca, as one of your call in guests I'd like to thank you for your uplifting and gracious interview with me. Your positive energy puts people at ease and you made me feel instantly comfortable. Sex is such an important issue in our lives but discussions often tend to be pornified, awkward or trivialized. You have a gift for sharing essential relationship information and advice in an honest encouraging way. I have interviewed with many hosts and you are exceptional. Thank you for making a difference in people's lives. I'm so glad you like my book and recommended it to your audience. I wish you continued success with your caring career.

I love watching your show. I love the whole mix of a call in show with the advice part. It's so much more interesting that way - that's why I'm hooked from the opening e-mail all the way to the book review. And it's brilliant that you cover both relationships and sexuality and give a wider perspective than just "plumbing issues" - unlike Sue, where after watching a few shows, it was same ol' same ol' ... you're a lot easier on the eyes -:). Anyhow, keep up the good work - don't know what you're made of, but you're covering it all for us; and your callers seem comfortable opening up to you. Your confidence it pretty amazing too!
Thanks to Rebecca and her wise, attentive advice, I have been able to get through a very unpleasant relationship experience with someone who was abusing me emotionally. I had no idea that was what was going on until Rebecca discussed it with me on air at length and recommended a great book ("Emotional Bullshit"). Now, I'm feeling so much better about myself, and realize how wrong that person was for me, and how right a new person is. Thank you, Rebecca, and thank you Rogers for putting on this important show.
I'd carried the burden of being sexually abused as a kid for forty years, without telling a soul - thanks for making me feel safe enough to open up to you - the life-long burden has lifted off my shoulders. I'm going to follow your advice, but already I'm starting to feel better. I'd accepted an abusive pattern of relationships as the best I could do, but you showed me that I didn't have to be stuck in my trauma forever.
God bless you!
I am sure you get lots of these emails but I just couldn't control myself! I HAD to let you know that you are absolutely fantastic in your style, and in how you approach each question. Your elegance and intelligence makes your show a stopper for me every time. To be honest, I enjoy your respect and the care you show for your callers more than the problems people are calling about. And of course you are VERY beautiful and always dressed like a superstar.
Best of luck in everything you do :)
I wanted to say that it's important that young women don't get treated poorly by their "boyfriends". Whenever a young woman calls and tells you that her boyfriend treats her like s&it, you look visually concerned and you say: "What are you getting out of this relationship?" It's so important to keep telling people that. I'm 43 right now - but waaaaaay back, I look back and think "what was I thinking?" Why did I put up with that? Thanks for making us ask critical questions of ourselves and for empowering young women. I always watch your show with my daughter - you are a great role model on top of everything else!
I really enjoy the show. Your sensitivity to the many and varied issues that are presented there is much appreciated. Your insights are given with so much professional forethought and always in such a buoyant manner. These ideas are so helpful when people are puzzled and struggling with communicating with partners over such an important and universal issue as sexuality. You make this huge topic appear so natural and you also try to show several alternatives (when needed) for people to consider as ways to approach their particular concerns.
I was about to make the biggest mistake of my life, letting my boyfriend talk me into sleeping with him when I wasn't feeling ready. I almost gave him my virginity, because he threatened to leave me otherwise. Thanks to you I stood my ground and felt good about it. I used to think there was something wrong with me, but you reassured me that it was perfectly okay for me to choose to save myself until I was ready. Thanks to you, I respect and like myself now, and I didn't give it up for some jerk.
My wife and I really appreciated that you acknowledged us as sexual individuals. When you get to be in your seventies, people snigger, or think it's gross. You were so thrilled at the tenderness and intimacy between us that has become the most important part of our lives. Thanks for handling our concerns so respectfully and giving us advice on how to work around our "challenges". We've been too afraid to talk to anyone about this.
Keep up the good work!

Just wanted to let you know that your interactions with people are more than education, advice or therapy. There's a real concern and connection. You truly seem to care. I'm always blown away by how the conversations transpire. I've learned so much from you. You're not afraid to be direct, to-the-point, practical, non-judgmental, while showing genuine concern. I can tell this is more than a job for you (which you seem to love); it's your mission.
I just finished watching another Sex @ 11 show. I have taught Sexuality in Ontario high schools and frequently watch Sexuality-based programs. The Sex @ 11 hostess is the most knowledgeable and realistic person I have ever witnessed. Tonight she handled very difficult questions with professionalism and warmth.
I was impressed by your show on Tuesday night, Sex at 11. The host Rebecca seemed perfect for the part and was very attractive in her appearance, on-camera presence, advice and handling of the callers. As the author of five books on fear, I was particularly moved by the way she was able to help people overcome their fear of opening up. She made them feel comfortable talking to her about their sensitive problems, with her warm and trusting style.
Just a note to tell you that I've been hearing about your show from my patients for a while - finally saw it tonight and absolutely loved it. I found your delivery of information, with your genuine and effective efforts to help people out in an authoritative, yet very non-threatening way was profoundly moving. I really think you're going to help a lot of people.
Rebecca has a very open and straightforward approach with loads of information that is both practical and filled with helpful examples. She makes everyone feel comfortable and at ease and excited to try out all the new tips! Also, it gives me and my partner a chance to tackle tough issues as they come up on TV - would never be able to raise them on our own.
Love the way Rebecca handles difficult and uncomfortable questions with professionalism and keeps the callers dignity intact. As an MD, I'm all too aware of how hard that is, and I'm truly impressed with that and her knowledge.
Hello Ms. Rosenblat,
The world of sexuality has ALWAYS been something I have loved to study and give advice on/consult with patients concerning their issue(s). I must say, Rebecca, it is when I found YOUR SHOW on Rogers TV that it was as almost something 'clicked,' especially as I keep watching your show [faithfully!] twice a week for the past several weeks!!! I think you're absolutely AMAZING, Rebecca.........you know exactly what to say to people to put their minds at ease and answer their queries......your calm, compassionate tone facilitates a connection through the telephone I have never previously seen in this world! And you're great with men - it's hard to get them to open up. You & your staff/show should be commended. We need more conscientious people like yourself who actually believe in educating versus merely dispensing advice. YOU, I think, are the ONLY person I've encountered that has actually recognized this absolutely FUNDAMENTAL aspect of Care. And you seem like SUCH an easy lady to talk to, you really take everything everyone says into consideration and give them amazing information to better themselves.
Anyway, keep up the GREAT, GREAT job you're doing........and have yourself a wonderful day!
